Review by in Cambridge, MA
I had an emergency - water pouring into the basement from an unknown source. CJ was here in under an hour, stopped the flood , identified the issue and established next steps to take.

Review by Jared G. in Belmont, MA
The Good: CJ adjusted the start date to come early. CJ is very responsive to phone calls and texts. The Bad: We started getting 2x the water in our basement after the exterior drain install. We actually contacted a civil engineer to review the issue and work done by First Response. We were told that the work done by First Response was installed 100% wrong and would only make our water issue worse! To add to this they also jack hammered one of our back deck stairs into pieces and left us a home depot board to replace it. If you work with this company, you are flushing money down the toilet. We lost over $3,000 dollars. Don't make the same mistake!
Response by First Response Waterproofing & General Contracting: Jared we sincerely apologize for your frustration. When we first met for the free assessment you put a request in on home advisor for an exterior french drain. When I arrived at the property you had your basement floor open to replace your plumbing line and there was a substantial amount of water under your floor slab. I've been in this business for 7 years and as I advise to we never recommend installing an exterior french drain to take care of a high water table problem. I explained to you and your contractor the proper solution is a sum pump and drainage system inside the basement. You and your contractor explained to me that the water problem.

Great to work with. CJ is a pro. They were in and out in a day. Haven't had any significant rain since the work so hard to evaluate the effectiveness of the work. Bur I have to say I'm confident going forward. overall so far a great experience

Review by in Cambridge, MA
They did a good job and did what the contract said. Unfortunately there were additional leaks that appeared outside of the agreed portion of the foundation. I am asking them to return to do more work. They are very professional.

Review by in Sudbury, MA
They were quick to come out and give an estimate. The price was great, especially considering the work to put in an internal French drain. We scheduled and the crew worked hard Jack hammering and hauling the rock out of the basement, installing the drain in one day. Everything stated clean and the crew worked hard. Very happy

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
